Emanuela Bianchi's research focuses on sex, gender, and sexuality in ancient Greek metaphysics, and the reverberations of those early ideas for contemporary philosophical and theoretical discourses. Her interests encompass a genealogical approach to matter and bodies, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, poststructuralism, queer theory and feminism. Her current research ranges from an investigation of the ancient Greek notions of genos (kinship; kind), and physis (nature) in literature and philosophy, to the question of the fate of eros in Aristotle, to the treatment of time and narrative in the thought of Luce Irigaray.
